How to run scripts in Python?

Modified on Thu, 18 Jan 2024 at 11:27 AM

All files specified in the examples should be located in the /domains/YOURDOMAIN/public_html directory.

Minimum code of the running script.


Don't forget to set permissions on the script to 755 (chmod +x run.py)


File: run.py

#!/usr/bin/env python
# -*- coding: UTF-8 -*-

import wsgiref.handlers

def application(environ, start_response):
    start_response('200 OK', [('Content-Type''text/plain')])
    return ['Hello World!\n']

wsgiref.handlers.CGIHandler().run(application)


Next, create a .htaccess file with the following contents


File: .htaccess

Options -Indexes +ExecCGI
AddHandler cgi-script .py
DirectoryIndex run.py

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !/run.py
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /run.py/$1 [L]



If the script is not located in the root directory of the site, in a subdirectory, then in .htaccess it is necessary to specify the full path to the script. For example:


DirectoryIndex /home/NAMEUSER/domains/YOURDOMAIN/public_html/app/index.py
